    I'm the submitter of this recipe, and I haven't been here in a long while, but I was APPALLED when I read the recipe here. It is supposed to read ONE TABLESPOON onion juice, not a whole onion!!!!! No wonder some people said it was too onion-y! Honestly, I don't believe I submittied it that way, maybe a typo when Allrecipes posted it. So sorry it came out that way! It really is a great dressing. Additionally I've found it gets by very well with only 1/2 cup sugar instead of 3/4 cup.  -  21 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is an out standing recipe. I have been making this for years. The only difference in my recipe is I use only 1/2 cup sugar and 1T minced onion and only 1T poppy seed. I have made without onions too. Mix in blender without the seeds. Add seeds after blending. It really is restaurant quality. Thanks Cathy!  -  11 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very tasty recipe Cathy. I followed the suggestions of some of the other reviewers and used only 1/2 cup of sugar and maybe 1/4 cup of grated onion. I added a little balsamic vinegar (the brand I use is strong and rather sweet) for a bit more flavor. I mixed this in the blender, adding the oil in a small stream so I ended up with a mayonnaise-like dressing and then added the poppy seeds. On baby spinach with fresh raspberries and crumbled blue cheese, it was an ideal summer evening salad.  -  29 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
